As the 1960s dawned in small-town Michigan, Anne-Marie Oomen was a naive farm girl whose mother was determined to keep her out of trouble—by keeping her in 4-H. In Love, Sex and 4-H, Oomen sets the wholesomeness of her domestic lessons in 4-H club against the political and sexual revolution of the time. Oomen will take you along as she falls in and out of love, wins her first prize, learns to kiss, survives her first heartbreak, and makes almost all of her clothes. Oomen's energetic readings and her story-of-the-story approach will unite audiences in the comfort that you carry yourself with you wherever you go. A book signing will follow the presentation.
